Magnetic Chore Chart

Since my oldest child is almost 5 now, I knew it was time to start a chore chart 
for her so she can help more with simple things around the house.
 I went on Pinterest looking for a cute chore chart and found a cute magnetic
 one like my Pizza Pan Magnetic Boards I made HERE.


I loved the idea of how they put this together so
I kind of did what they had done. 


Here is the Chart I made:




This only cost me about $3.00 to make. I bought the pizza pan at the dollar store and then got the bottle caps at Michael's in a big pack. I definitely have some left over for other projects. 


How I Made It:


First, I had to come up with the chores I wanted to use. With my kiddos still being little, I had to think of things they could handle doing. {The best part about vinyl is that it peels off so I can change the chores later on!}

I then got onto my Circut computer program and designed the chores to be inside of circles.


Then I transferred those onto the pizza pan.
After I got them all on, I measured out the middle and the designed the saying "When we're helping we're happy" on my circut as well and transferred that onto the pan.



Next, I made the bottle cap magnets.
I got on my circut again and cut out circles the size of the bottle cap. I use pink and green vinyl. One color for each child. Then I cut out the first initial for each child in white vinyl. I put the circles on the bottle caps first and then put the initials on top of the colored vinyl.


When those were all put together I hot glued magnets onto the back of them. I could have just let the magnetic part to its magic here, but let's be honest...kids are involved with this so I wanted them to be secure!


 I wanted to be able to hang this up so next,
I drilled 2 holes in the top of the pan on both sides of it.


This way I could feed the ribbon through so it would be more secure. I tied on knot on both ends and left it showing towards the front.



Lastly, I put the magnets on the board!!

It was pretty easy to make, just a lot of work on the Circut!




I can't even tell you how much this has worked. My daughter, especially, has been so excited to help around the house. She loves being able to take her magnets off when she is done with that chore! My little guy doesn't really understand, but when he is done with his chore, I let him move his magnet to make it fun so when he does he will be excited!

  10. Great tips everybody. Thanks! I even have a giant colorful sign on my schoolroom that claims 'If not Pine Tree State, who? If not currently, when?'. I refer the kids to the current whenever there's a large number to scrub up, or employment to be donejob chartIt's nice to listen to them say it to themselves typically, as they devour a born pencil or one thing (that wasn't even theirs...wow!). I additionally love the method you visit your students as 'friends'. may strive it....
    Thanks!!
